Bartsia, Orobanche (Broomrape) & Parentucellia (Glandweed)

Mediterranean Linseeds (Bartsia spp.), Broomrapes (Orobanche spp.) and Glandweeds (Parentucellia ssp.) are annual to biennial or rarely short lived perennial species within the broomrape family (Orobanchaceae) from open sunny spots throughout Eurasia and North America. They are semi-parasitic plants which have chlorophyll in their leaves and do not necessarily need a host plant to grow well. Several species have some ornamental value for their upright hold inflorescences with bright colored flowers. All are easily cultivated in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny and protected spot.
Sow the dustlike seeds preferably in mid spring on top of any well drained soil. Do not cover seeds with soil, keep pots in a protected spot outside and soil slightly moist from below. Carefully transplant as soon as seedlings are strong enough.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7/8.
50 seeds per package.
